Driscoll wrote:

“Summary and Recommendation Key investor takeaways. Yesterday, we attended PLUG’s investor day in Latham, NY , and offer our key takeaways. First, sometimes we forget PLUG created the fuel cell market for material handling and boasts ~95% market share, with over 19,000 units deployed and a $10 billion global addressable market, estimated to be less than 10% penetrated. Second, we believe PLUG’s turnkey solution, GenKey, is unmatched by any competitor. GenKey includes fuel cell engines, fueling infrastructure, and hydrogen fuel and service/maintenance the company developed over 10 years. In our opinion, no one else comes close to matching this, which we believe binds customers and increases repeat business. Third, there is potentially up to 40% more cost reductions to come from improvements in stack technology and scale.”
